Talk about the David Wright Goatee Watch 2006! Looks like our third baseman’s letting it run wild in the off-season. And what’s with the new glasses, David Claus?
Truly, though, who else would have been the Mets annual Santa? David Wright has absolutely become the public face of the organization (Wright Flight, anyone?), famous for his press-perfect soundbytes and flawless manners. And I’m happy to have him representing the team.
By the way? Neighborhood rumors have it that D-Wright has moved just a couple blocks west and a few blocks north of my apartment. Wonder if I’ll run into him at the local shops! There are some very good menswear stores near his new apartment building–perhaps even GQ Man of the Year worthy.
For now, I’ll leave you with this, our own dear David, talking about Barry Zito in his usual calm on-air demeanor. And in a Santa suit. I pretty much adore it.
Happy Holiday time, lovely people!
